I have been here a number of times now and this place is top of the line for the Santa Monica or Los Angeles area, cool crowd that is not exactly expected in this neck of the woods, first time I went was like a year ago for a bottle of Firestone 10 with my girlfriend and it was fantastic, still one of the best if not the best beers I have ever had, next visit I had an Evil Dead Red from Alesmith, most pint prices are around seven dollars, great bottle prices in my opinion, they have about a dozen taps that are usually rotated quite a bit and constantly, get some good local stuff along with some other east coast microbrews and occasional imports, cannot wait to see some of the casks that come in now that they have three handpump machines, heard the Firestone Double Barrel they had a few weeks ago was awesome, forgot to mention that this place has some of the nicest bartenders you will ever meet, it is not the cleanest place in the world but it has it charm, shuffleboard tables on the other side of the bar can keep you busy as well, will be going here a lot now that I am back living in the LA area, only real downfall of this joint is the parking situation which can be a pain in the ass at times, do yourself a favor and check this place out, it is well worth it!

Been many times. Can get very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights. Mostly a "dive" bar. Nothing fancy, just lots of Whiskey/Scotch and beer on tap with 3 or 4 cask offerings. Fairly dark interior, long bar, chalkboard lists the beers and specials. Two pool tables, a shuffleboard game, juke box, and foosball game to play. Lots of TV screens, plus a large projector on the wall. Bathrooms are dingy and small. Service can be variable, but normally O.K. Thirty-three taps with about a quarter rotating regularly. Lines not always cleaned between kegs. Cooler with nearly 100 different bottles to purchase. No food, but you can bring your own or order and have it delivered. Sometimes a food truck shows up for a special event. Most beers are $8/pint which is too expensive for me. No happy hour prices. During NFL season on Sundays most beers are a dollar off. Worth a stop if you are in the area. Would be great if they expanded and cleaned the place up a bit.

I've been here a few times but I'll never go back. They have a great selection of Scotch whiskeys and a better than average beer menu, but that's not enough to overcome how ordinary and drab the place is, and how awful and rude the service is. Maybe I'm overreacting to the one truly terrible bartender I encountered there who tried, three times, to take away my drinks while I was still drinking them. When I asked to be left alone to finish my drink she called me "weird." Okay, did you just call me weird? "You're getting all territorial!" My mistake: I'm not weird, I'm weird and territorial. I had a beer, a Scotch, and a glass of water, and she tried lifting each of them before I was done, and I told her, politely, that I was still drinking them. She fled the scary scene and refused to acknowledge me in my attempt to get another glass of water before leaving forever. Yes, they have good whiskey, but most of the bar staff doesn't know a thing about the 250 Scotches they have, and ultimately it's just another dive with crappy service. They don't train the servers to know that the customer is always right; instead, they allow them to insult the customer by calling them names without any provocation. Pass.

Decent bar with a very good selection of beer and single malt Scotch. Hopefully you won't have the displeasure of meeting the owner. He really is a horrible person...not at all suited to a career in the hospitality industry... Otherwise the place gets a good mix of people and is really the only thing in that neighborhood...
